Ian Mankin leading the way in Organic Furnishing Fabrics

Ian Mankin has long been a favourite boutique fabric house of mine. They have an extensive array of classic contemporary furnishing fabrics & wallpaper in their collection. All their fabrics are made from 100% natural fibers and over 90% are woven in their traditional Lancashire Mill in the UK. The same family has run Ian Mankin for six generations and this shows in their dedication to design, quality & service.

I have used their fabrics in several residential design projects over the years, and will continue to showcase these in future blogs! All fabrics from the range are available to order via Green Envy Living. To day I wanted to focus on their Organic Ticking range.

At $65 a meter, this Linen Union mix (60% Cotton & 40% Linen giving it extra strength). It is of exceptional quality & value!


Organic-Ticking Linen Union

Ian Mankin is leading the way in weaving delightful designer Organic furnishing fabrics. Reasonably prices, high quality and certified by the Organic Soil Association - what more could you ask for? Perhaps a finalist in the 2009 Natural & Organic Awards Best Organic Textile Product!

Dublin Design Duo go from strength to strength

Dublin Design Duo Kate Cronin and Liz Fingelton aka Klickity are going from strength to strength!  Klickity were formed when Kate, a graduate from the National College of Art and Design and Liz a graduate with a BA in Business Studies from Dublin City University joined forces in 2010.

Since then their playful and bright creations, which reflect their commitment to sustainability have been catching the eye of the international design market.  In May 2012 they were awarded a Future Design Award by the Crafts Council of Ireland.  In September 2012, they wooed the London Market at 100% Design.  People love the simplicity of their designs like the Fanfare Clock, and the flatpack nature of their designs make them easy to transport.

Green Envy Living currently stocks The Fanfare Clock, The Fig Lampshade & the Klip Noticeboard.  More to come to Australia, because we love them and feedback from the Oz Market is great!

Missprint Wallpaper

Wallpaper isn't featured as much as it should be in Australia, in my opinion. Perhaps, from a fear of overbearing flocks that dominated the 70's! Or house construction methods that limit the finishing detail to Internal Walls.

Australia, you’re missing out! Over the last ten years there has been a renaissance in wallpaper in Europe. The "Feature Wall” took centre stage! While, yes perhaps overdone again in places with the large "damask" & overbearing Floral that sprung up everywhere. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed the rise of new print designers - non-more than Missprint Wallpaper!

Leaves preview

I have had a long love affair with the Missprint Collection since spotted at London’s 100% Design five year ago! Their designs incorporate some a style I love of simplicity, clean lines & Organic forms. They note their influenced by their love of mid century and Scandinavian design.

MissPrint is passionate about being ecological and the environment. Their products are produced in the most ecologically friendly way. The entire wallpaper range is PEFC certified which means that the paper products used promote the sustainable management of Forests. The wallpapers are also printed with organic pigment inks, which are non-toxic, free of heavy metals and classed as non-carcinogenic.

What’s more, they tick the Green Envy Living box of designing & manufacturing in their home country - supporting the British manufacturing industry.
